Recent Manuel Antonio reviews

  • We loved Jungle Creek!

    "Our family of four really enjoyed our stay in the 2 bedroom Dos Palmas Villa. Paula was really helpful with arranging an itinerary and booking activities before we arrived. She and Clark were not home during our stay, but Ellie and her husband were staying on the property. Ellie was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We enjoyed horseback riding with Rancho Tipica don Juan, ziplining with Canopy Safari, and a guided tour of the national park with Pablo. The typical Costa Rican lunches with the horseback riding and ziplining tours were very good. We also enjoyed eating dinners out in Manuel Antonio at El Wagon, Aqua Azul, and Baja Roja. We made breakfast in our condo every morning and the kitchen had everything we needed. Our boys loved playing in the little pool at the resort and cooled off in it every afternoon. Thank you for a great stay!"

  • The perfect place!

    "I can't say enough great things about the house. The location is awesome and the view is beautiful. The house is very spacious, luxurious and has all the amenities. Even the drive to get there is adventurous. We loved being in the mountains where the air is pure and you're away from all the congestion of the major tourist cities like Manual Antonio. After spending most all of our days on adventures it was great to come back to the quiet house in the mountains at the end of the day and relax by the pool. It's only a short drive to some of the best restaurants in Manual Antonio (Emilio's and Cafe Melagro were our favorites). The caretaker Bert was great for recommendations of places and helping us find the house for the first time. A 4x4 vehicle is a must especially in the summer/rainy season as the house is in the mountains. We loved it and will absolutely be returning here for all of our future trips to Costa Rica!"

  • Perfect Family Getaway

    "The only negative thing I can say about the trip was the travel day (and I'm only complaining because I had a cranky 19 Month old with me). Other than that, the family jungle house was everything we imagined and more. The house was larger than I had expected, with each couple having their own room (and bathroom). The service was spectacular. The owner, Heather, was very helpful and accessible. She responds to emails within minutes. I would recommend using Josue, the concierge, for everything and anything. He was extremely accommodating, and always answered his phone. He set us up with a few excursions including zip-lining, a catamaran trip, and also took us on a tour of the national park. He really wanted to make sure we enjoyed our trip, and reached out to us almost daily to make sure we were ok. Roxana's cooking was second to none. We were very surprised at how good the Costa Rican cuisine was when we went out to eat, but Roxana's meals trumped everything we had at restaurants. She made enough food to feed a small army, and it was a lot less expensive than going out for meals. She handled everything else with us barely knowing she was there. I thought the best part of the house was the pool. After going to the beach all day, it was a really nice treat to come back and use the pool to cool off. It was clean, the slide was amazing, and the 3 different levels allowed everyone to enjoy it (including the baby) thoroughly. The pool was cleaned and maintained 3 times while we were there. The house has a security system which was a nice feature as well. This house was recommended to me by a friend, who told me it was paradise...I would agree and recommend this to anyone who wants a relaxing and fun vacation."

  • Wonderful Stay

    "Our family of six had an incredible time staying here at Villa Manuel Antonio! Let me first say that while searching, I messaged the owner, Laurent, and asked him about public transportation availability and ease as one of my sons is on crutches. Laurent called me to let me know that the transportation was fine, but that there were stairs to our floor since we were looking at the lowest level with a small yard for my children to run around in and search for lizards. He was concerned that my son would not be able to do the stairs and wanted to let me know before I booked the villa. He sent me pictures that he took of the stairs and we decided my son would be fine and continued with our booking. It was nice to see that Laurent's concern was for our comfort and enjoyment, even at the risk of us looking elsewhere if we felt our son would have difficulty on the stairs. So, back to the review... Our villa was located on the lowest level with a small yard and a view of the Pacific and the national park. The two bedrooms have king beds and there is a fold out couch in the living room. The bathrooms are large and the villa is a great place to stay. The kitchen comes with all the hardware for preparing meals yourself. The pool also has a nice view and our kids enjoyed swimming in it. During the morning it is in the sunshine, but after lunch it begins to get some shade to offer respite from the heat of the day. Our kids enjoyed the pool everyday. We also saw monkeys, a sloth, numerous birds and some colorful lizards while at the villa. The location is phenomenal. Perched on a hilltop but only steps to the bus that runs to beaches and the park in one direction, and Quepos in the other. There is no need to rent a car, just take the bus. Taxis were also easy to hail. There are also restaurants nearby (try the Falafel Bar), as well as a Bank of Costa Rica, Economy Car Rental and a small convenience store. There was not a lot of walking to these places so it was perfect for our son. It really is an ideal location for getting to wherever you need to go. As for Laurent, he stays on the property which is such a big help for finding whatever you need. He arranges tours and transportation to San Jose or wherever. He can point you in the right direction for food, groceries or any other needs. He is very friendly and a delight to talk with. It was our pleasure to meet him. We highly recommend booking your stay with Villa Manuel Antonio. You won't regret it!"
